Duration:
180 minutes

Abstract

This tutorial is crafted for those new to the concepts of concurrent programming, offering a deep dive into the intricacies of parallelism and concurrency in Python. We will cover basic threading and multiprocessing to the advanced asynchronous I/O capabilities of AsyncIO.

Async IO is a concurrent programming design that has received dedicated support in Python; whereas the package in the Python standard library asyncio provides a foundation and API for running and managing coroutines. Whether you’re handling I/O-bound or CPU-bound tasks, this tutorial will equip you with the knowledge to write efficient, robust, and high-performing Python applications.
